Stainless Steel Alloy 410S

Type 410S is a low carbon, non-hardening version of Type 410 stainless steel. This general-purpose stainless steel remains soft and ductile even when rapidly cooled. Other key benefits of Type 410S include:

  • Weldable by most common techniques
  • Good resistance to oxidation
  • Continuous services up to 1300°F (705°C)
  • Similar corrosion resistance to Type 410, good in fresh water and mild organic and mineral acids

It is important to note that Type 410S has a lower carbon level than Type 410.  In order to be considered Type 410S, a stainless steel must have the following chemical properties:

  • Fe balance
  • Cr 11.5-14.5%
  • Ni 0.60% max
  • C 0.08% max
  • Mn 1% max
  • P 0.040% max
  • S 0.030% max
  • Si 1% max

Because of its unique properties and chemical composition, Type 410S is useful for a variety of applications in a large range of critical industries including:

  • Petroleum refining
  • Petrochemical processing
  • Thermal processing
  • Gate valves
  • Press plates
  • Heat exchangers
  • Ore processing and mining machinery

Continental Steel supplies Type 410S stainless steel in a number of different forms and sizes all of which meet some of the toughest international standards including, ASTM A 240 and ASME SA 240.
